When the Enchantress asks the apprentices to perform the flight of spring, Glee (Elina's friend), has her hands folded over in front of her; when she walks forward, her hands still folded over go straight through her crotch area and out behind her still in the same position. See more »
I was very skeptical about letting my four-year-old daughter watch this movie as I generally don't like the messages taught by "girls'" movies. However, I was very pleasantly surprised at how positive this movie is. Unlike the Disney princess movies, it focuses on personal achievement rather than on romance. The heroine's goal isn't to fall in love and get married, but rather, to learn and grow and save the world. She doesn't wait around to be rescued. Instead, Barbie/Elina is pro-active in solving her crisis. I also like that the villainess is not fat. She is curvy but it serves more to show that she is older and more experienced than Barbie/Elina, making her a more formidable opponent. Finally, this movie also shares an often hard-to-learn lesson: not everyone is going to like you or want to be your friend but that doesn't make them evil. Sometimes we have to work with people with whom we don't agree in order to accomplish the task at hand.
